Interaction with Guests
I am here to answer any questions or help in any way. Or you can have all the private space that you like :)
The neighborhood is historical, walkable, treelined, and the town is an authentic, working fishing town. This is classic New England. Antique homes of character, romanesque buildings, stone walls, etc. Fairhaven, a small picturesque town shares a harbor with New Bedford. This harbor is the biggest income producing fihsing harbor in all of America. we have nearly 500 working fishing boats here. So, great seafood. Fairhaven has a pretty, mile-long sandy beach as well.
You can take a bus here and you can walk around town easily. we also have a bike path.

My father and I planned a spontaneous road trip to New Bedford and Paul was able to accommodate us on short notice. We stayed two nights. Like a previous review implied, the photos don't do Paul's home justice-- the dining and living rooms are really grand, and provide a great setting to eat a wide breakfast assortment that Paul provides that is much more impressive than your typical complimentary hotel breakfast. The room and (new, upstairs) bathroom were very clean and uncluttered. The house is in the middle of a nice, quiet neighborhood of historic homes, with easy walking to a nearby historical fort and easy driving access to New Bedford proper, as well as regional roads and highways. We were very happy to have chosen Paul's listing.
The reservation was canceled 6 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
My sister and I had a wonderful stay here in Fairhaven. Paul's home was more beautiful than in the photos. It was evident that he cares about his guests' experience as much as he cares about his own home. The hospitality was truly refreshing and Heidi tended to our every need! We look forward to a future opportunity to visit his lovely home again.
